Second Win8.1 Media Center box

#1

Post by logan607 » Mon Apr 05, 2021 9:51 pm

Hi all - I looked around the forum and couldn't find an answer so I'm posting here now.

I have an old Win7.0 MediaCenter box that I've been using since at least 2010 with an HD HomeRun networked CC tuner with three tuners here in NYC for TimeWarner/Spectrum.

Once the listings died, I immediately switched over to EPG123 and Schedules Direct and have been happily using it ever since.

Because of downtime due to COVID, I built a second Win8.1 box with MediaCenter for my son's bedroom.

I cannot get EPG123 to create a guide listing for me on the new Win8.1 box.

I've done everything in the guide - both from trying to install epg123_v1.6.3.1 as a standalone program with the same Schedules Direct login to uninstalling everything and running it only as a client, to uninstalling everything and redoing the setup, to backing up the data from the Win7.0 box to restore onto the Win8.1 box; I believe I've installed all variations of EPG123 a dozen times.

In the end, the result is always the same, there are no stations to download and there are no INCLUDED lineups and/or no stations selected for download.

The original installation in 2015 was effortless so I'm wondering if I'm just missing something very obvious.

Help, please!

See the little pull-down arrow next to the red dot by the lineup title? You need to click on that and select include to actually include that lineup.

Jesus Christ - I'm both embarrassed and thrilled - thank you!
